Hostess & Decor
If you’re hosting Thanksgiving at your house, a little decor goes a long way. And of course if someone is hosting you, a gift is always essential. Wine and flowers always work, but if you’re in need of some additional inspiration, here are a few things to get you going. For candles, anything
Diptyque is always a golden choice. But now with their 3 new holiday scents (all really good!), there’s no reason not to. The Mason Shaker barware set has a cute mason jar cocktail shaker, plus a great cocktail book and a jigger–the full kit for anyone that’s into making some delicious drinks. Books are always a nice gift, and travel is an easy subject to nail across the board.
Also, since 2016 is around the corner and people are starting to get organized for the new year, getting a nice agenda and customizing it with the host’s initials makes for a wonderful and thoughtful gift. Hosts often serve espresso and tea, and these double-walled Bodum mugs are sleek and handy, plus make a nice kitchen addition.
In the name of holiday decor, you don’t need to go all out, but getting festive with a few pumpkins or gourds, a leafy wreath, and a chalkboard could be just the touch. The little ring holder is not exactly a centerpiece, but in the name of being thankful and making wishes, it’s a nice thing to stash bedside.
